UPDATE: Tremichael Richardson has surrendered to Mobile police. He’s charged with first-degree robbery.


MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - According to Mobile Police, an armed teenager opened fire, trying to steal a lawnmower.

This is 18-year-old Tremichael Richardson. Mobile Police says he has a couple of street names he goes by, too: “Tremichael Cherry” and “T-Mike.” Last month, investigators say a private yard company crew was working a yard on Crest Brook Drive in South Mobile. They went back to their trailer to get some more equipment, and that’s when they found trouble instead. According to MPD, they caught Richardson stealing a lawnmower. He’d put it in the back of a car he was driving. When the workers yelled at him, Richardson pulled out a gun and started shooting at them. They ran off, and he sped off in the car. No one was hurt, and eventually, the lawnmower was recovered, but there’s been no sign of Richardson. However, police believe he’s still in the area.

Tremichael Richardson is 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds. He’s charged with first-degree robbery. If you have seen Richardson or know where he is, call the FOX10 News Fugitive Files-Crime Stoppers Hotline at 251-208-7211. You DON’T have to leave your name when you make that call.
